When tests reveal that preborn babies have Down syndrome, the majority of women decide to abort. Here are the reflections of one woman who has a child with Down syndrome:
There are strong opinions regarding Starbucks encouraging their employees to discuss the issue of race with customers, while serving them their cup of coffee.
As Saynsumthn Blog notes, pro-lifers have taken to Twitter and used the hashtag #RaceTogether to discuss race, abortion, and Planned Parenthood.
We’ve been dealing with a downpour of lies from NARAL this week, but the end is finally in sight. Here it is, the third and final chapter in which we destroy the rest of their malicious attack on crisis pregnancy centers.
Sin #10: CPCs underhandedly try to get women to delay their decision until they’ve missed the legal window for abortion.
NARAL condemns anonymous CPC volunteers in New York and Maryland for “falsely” telling women they had a lot of time to think about abortion because it’s legal throughout all nine months, when in reality laws generally put the cutoff at viability or earlier. What NARAL doesn’t mention: under current controlling judicial precedent, late-term bans must still allow a health exception so broad as to be effectively meaningless. The CPCs’ (alleged) advice is correct. Continue reading
Eight pro-life leaders were arrested yesterday by U.S. Capitol police during the #FreeTheBan sit-in event that took place at House Speaker John Boehner’s office. Event attendees knelt down and prayed outside of the office, blocking entry.
It’s hard to know where to start with my story — I guess from the beginning. I was conceived when my mom was raped by an encyclopedia salesman who forced his way into my mom’s mobile home, while my three-year-old brother was asleep. He raped her, and then left. She was in shock and didn’t know what to do. She was on assistance and had a wonderful social worker, but was afraid to even tell her.
A UK mother is now terrified for her child’s life and health after doctors wrongly gave her the abortion pill. According to the Daily Mirror, at eight weeks, Rachel Nicholson visited the hospital to obtain advice on pregnancy. Nicholson, 23, was required to have an ultrasound to confirm that she was pregnant, but during the procedure, the nurse gave her heartbreaking news.
“She said to me that she couldn’t find a heartbeat and that the baby had shrunk in size,” explained Nicholson.
Since Nicholson had a previous miscarriage, she felt that a similar tragedy was taking place once again. Nicholson did what the doctor recommended and took a pill to expedite the miscarriage – the same one that women seeking first-trimester abortions often take.
Today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report on its investigation into federal funding of Planned Parenthood.
The GAO investigated six different abortion-associated organizations, but Planned Parenthood was given the most taxpayer dollars, by far. The total handed to the organizations by federal and state governments was $1.7 billion, from 2010-2012. Planned Parenthood received the lion’s share, coming in at a stunning $1.5 billion in a mere three years.
Day after day, taxpayers are forced to fund America’s abortion giant with the hard-earned money from their own pockets. Planned Parenthood’s grand total of $1.5 billion in three years comes out to $500 million each year and over $1.36 million every single day.
Noah died during a miscarriage at 12 weeks and 5 days. His mother willingly shared an amazing photo of his tiny human body so that others could see the humanity of the preborn child with their own eyes.
“If [Noah] could help show one mother considering abortion the beauty of her child,” Noah’s mother said. “Then our loss would be worth it.”
This article describes what happens to babies who are aborted at Noah’s age and younger.
Former left-wing talk radio star Jian Ghomeshi spent much of his airtime attacking sexism and violence against women. According to female subordinates, he spent much of his off-airtime attacking them with gropes, degrading comments and threats of violence.
Obviously, Mr. Ghomeshi wasn’t the first to accuse others of the very things he’s allegedly guilty of. That happens a lot in the abortion debate, too, which is why you tend to see stuff like this:
As pro-lifers, we continually work to see babies, mothers, and entire families spared from the tragedy of abortion. While it’s horrific to consider the millions that have died, it’s awesome to take time to reflect on the countless lives that have been saved. Here are a few stories that are cause for celebration!
1) 10,000 Babies!
On Monday, 40 Days for Life launched the final week of its 2015 Spring Campaign with exciting news: Since the first 40 Days for Life in 2007, 10,000 babies have been saved.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has a political track record of supporting pro-life initiatives, leading to increased frustrations among pro-life activists when he and other Republicans reneged on their promise to support “The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which would effectively ban all abortions after twenty weeks.
In response to the about-face, Reverend Patrick J. Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition, Jill Stanek of Jill Stanek.com, and Troy Newman of Operation Rescue issued a diplomatic letter of protest to Speaker Boehner.
An unnamed nurse gives a chilling description of infanticides that took place at the hospital where she worked. The nurse told a reporter from the Catholic Twin Circle that a doctor she worked with had a habit of euthanizing babies born with Down syndrome.
The chilling description below was published a long time ago, in 1983. However, it is just as relevant today.
Currently, 90 percent of preborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome do not make it out of the womb alive. The widespread use of amniocenteses and chronic villi sampling allow for the early detection of conditions like Down syndrome, leaving the parents free to decide what to do with their preborn baby. The parents can choose whether to let their baby live or to have him or her killed.
